Wild Kingdom

For living in the city, my house sure is a hotbed for wildlife. Corn and birdseed attract a herd of squirrels and baby bunnies nest under our backyard shed. The wrens have arrived and soon the yellow finches will travel from the south and pass through my feeders. Tonight I discovered a third nest by my front porch and a baby robin has hatched. In fact, all the nests have babies and I have begun to have anxious, fearful feelings of being witness to some tragedy that could fall upon them.
